I’m a figure skating fanatic, so I look forward to the Winter Games every four years to indulge my obsession. But I go so caught up in trying to catch up on all the hours of skting I’ve recorded that I nearly forgot my monthly blog date at A Slice of Orange.
Last month, I wondered if getting organized in the digital age was Mission Impossible. Maybe not quite, but I can’t say I’ve personally made a lot of progress in the last month, other than buying a day timer and dutifully jotting down the year’s events.
But as Scarlett O’Hara said, “tomorrow is another day” and that means another chance to hit the Restart button. But I won’t be hitting it until my Olympic vacation is over.
In the meantime, to make up for my lack of preparation, here’s a link to a sometimes-funny but always-illuminating look at Why Writers Are the Worst Procrastinators (what, I’m not the only one) by Megan McArdle, author of The Up Side of Down: Why Failing Well Is the Key to Success at the Atlantic Monthly.
I hope to do better next month. Happy Presidents Day weekend to all.
